“Aquí Estamos y No Nos Vamos”

  • Ericka Bolta

Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center and timed to coincide with Contemporary Art Month and Women’s History Month, “Aquí Estamos y No Nos Vamos (We’re Here and Not Leaving)” showcases artwork by more than 40 women of color. In a statement, organizers say the show “highlights the resistance, solidarity, anger, hope and healing women of color are experiencing in response to the abusive and oppressive rhetoric that was propagated during Trump’s campaign and has carried on into his presidency.” According to a press release, the artists featured in the exhibit are “working class, immigrant, queer, and create artwork ranging from traditional visual art to sound art to sculpture to textile and much more.” The group show is being curated by Rebel Mariposa, the proprietor of La Botánica vegan restaurant who is also active in performance and visual art circles. Most recently, Mariposa co-curated a solo show for documentarian and multimedia artist Arlene Mejorado titled “Califas Lens, San Anto Heart: Outside Looking In,” which won a Fotoseptiembre USA Choice Award in 2016. Free, 6-9pm Sat, Esperanza Peace and Justice Center, 922 San Pedro Ave., (210) 228-0201, — Sam Sanchez
